23rd Junior Film Fleadh Wednesday 8th – Saturday 11th, November 2017
Nine-year-old Icare, nicknamed Courgette, moves to a foster home, a place full of rejected kids fighting for survival among the rest of the bullies, loners and misfits. Using a Tim Burton stop-motion style to create big-eyed, fragile beings, the director achieves a very different but hugely affecting film of teen life. An Oscar-nominated animation, adapted from a YA novel by Girlhood director, Celine Sciamma.
